So you think you can Doo Wop?
The man who brought you "Rock, Pop and Doo Wop" and "Doo Wop Discoveries" is now looking for undiscovered national talent to appear in a new PBS special which will feature group harmony vocals and celebrate the Doo Wop era in American musical history.
T.J. Lubinsky, producer and director of many PBS music specials about "golden oldies" music, is on a global talent search for “The Next Doo Wop Star.”
According to IMDb, Lubinsky's grandfather, Herman Lubinsky Sr., founded Savoy Records in Newark, N.J. and "introduced acts that would be influential in modern popular music (Doo-Wop, Motown, disco and Top 40). He also founded and operated New Jersey's first radio station, WNJ. His uncle, "Buzzy", was also a well-known disc jockey in New Jersey." So he follows a family tradition of working to help preserve the sounds of the 50's and 60's.
Lubinsky is also a disc jockey now at woldradio.com every Friday night from 8 to Midnight where he plays the golden oldies. He estimates that his PBS specials have raised $70 million and been viewed in more than 40 million homes, according to the New York Times.
Aspiring a capella and vocal group harmony singers are invited to enter their audition videos on "The Next Doo Wop Star" website. There is a limit of one group submission per person and you must be a US citizen, at least 13 years old. Auditions are open through November 10, 2017. Watch the video below for more information from Mr. Lubinsky himself.
